1960's Mustard gown

I can't believe this dress is even in my presence.  I am so in love with it... and yes, love is a pretty strong emotion.  It's a gorgeous gown from the 1960's by Mike Benet  Formals.  The company was started in the early 60's in Texas and was known for making prom dresses and formal gowns.  This piece has a buttery pale yellow sleeveless base dress with a mustard chiffon gathered overlay top portion.  It's all held in place by the v-neck collar that is covered in pearls, rhinestones, and shiny gold string.  The embellished collar covers the front and the back, so no one will miss the amazing sight.  I could go on forever, but this one doesn't really need words.  Pretty much takes my breath away.  It's up in the shop today!
